My name is Angelika Albaladejo and I’m a freelance multimedia journalist currently based in Medellín, Colombia.
My research, reporting, writing, photography and audiovisual projects cover issues of security, human and women’s rights, sexual and gender-based violence and social protest in the Americas.
I have published reported articles and photojournalism with Fusion, TruthOut and The Huffington Post. I have also published reports, blogs and academic journal articles with The World Policy Journal, Security Assistance Monitor Blog, and Just Americas: A Blog by LAWG, among other outlets.
Between April 2015 and August 2016, I worked as a Program Associate with the Latin America Working Group (LAWG) where I engaged in research, writing, advocacy and communications work for the organization’s campaigns on Colombia, Cuba, and the northern triangle countries of Central America: Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
Previous to working at LAWG, I was the Latin America Rights and Security Fellow at the Center for International Policy (CIP) in the fall of 2014 and the co-host and co-producer of Periphery, an independent podcast on security and rights in the Americas, in the spring of 2015.
I completed my bachelor’s degree in Global Affairs at George Mason University with minors in Communications and Conflict Analysis & Resolution in 2012. I completed my master’s degree in Latin American Studies from Vanderbilt University in 2014.
I am a first-generation U.S.-born child of Cuban and Puerto Rican parents. I am fluent in English and Spanish and have working proficiency in Portuguese.
